You should start your resume with either a resume summary or resume objective based on how much work experience you have. If you have been in the workforce for at least a year, then you can include a summary statement. A good summary will include how much experience you have in a given industry, what your areas of expertise are, and what skills you possess that the employer can benefit from most. Do not use the summary statement to say you want a career change or why you have gaps in your employment.
For people without any work experience, such as high schoolers, it would be best to have an objective statement. In this case, it would only need to be one or two sentences in length. You want to convey passion and intention in this statement that will make an employer want to hire you.
